What I've Bought

Here's a little post of a few things I've bought recently. When I was at the duty free in the airport a few weeks ago, I thought I'd treat myself to a new perfume. My current perfume is Daisy by Marc Jacobs, the perfect summer fragrance. But when I spotted this Fantasy perfume by Nina Ricci in it's adorable little apple bottle, I had to try it! The bottle represents the perfume perfectly; floral, sweet and fresh. It may not be the strongest fragrance, but it's lovely and subtle and doesn't make me sneeze when I spray it!

After watching Ella's video on how she styles her wild and stunning hair, I went out and bought a mini bottle of Umberto Giannini's Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly. I've been on the hunt for a product that gives my hair natural looking curls and I have finally found it! It gives my hair lovely texture and feels weightless, not to mention the effortless curls I have been looking for. Pictures are below.

Also, the Wish and Aesthetic magazines arrived. They are jam-packed full of beautiful illustrations, inspirational bloggers and some super stunning outfits. I love reading about everyone's success stories and how they landed the job of their dreams, it makes me want to show the magazines to the careers department at college, jumping around like an excited kid with evidence that you don't have to be a lawyer or accountant to be happy. (They don't exactly approve of my chosen career path) I think it's inspirational to read these ladies' success stories, and makes me more determined to follow my dreams and do what makes me happy. So anyway, I highly recommend you buy these magazines, sit in a comfy chair with a cuppa tea/coffee, and enjoy!
